A great and tasty tour.

We were fortunate to be in a smaller group- only 14 people. Our guide drove us around Zurich and pointed out important landmarks. The highlight of the tour was the cable car ride to the top of the mountain and dinner at the restaurant, Felsenegg. That was a great experience. It should be pointed out that it is a bit of a walk from the cable car to the restaurant. It’s a pretty steep incline (downhill to the restaurant and uphill back to the cable car). People with mobility issues would have a hard time. And did I mention the visit to the Lindt Chocolate outlet? We only had 15 minutes, but it was enough. Lots of free samples and unique flavor offerings. The directions to the meeting place were great, but they don’t tell you to check in at the Best of Switzerland kiosk. Once you do that, you are directed to the proper tour bus.

This tour was such a lovely experience!! Andreas, our amazing driver/guide gave us a lot of information on Zurich and was willing to answer any question. Being a small group of 6, we had excellent time interacting with other people. We first stopped to see lake zurich, then went to the Lindt chocolate shop, were we go the opportunity to buy lindt chocolate at a very low price. We then proceeded to ride the cablecar up to Felsenegg, where there's a restaurant with an amazing panoramic view of zurich. The hot drink and appetizers were brought to us outside so that we could enjoy the spectacular view' and then we went inside to eat the delicious cheese fondue. I highly recommend this tour!
